James Cameron, the very well-known movie maker, descended into the Mariana Trench's Challenger Deep, the deepest point on Earth in March of 2012. He took his custom-designed submarine into the trench to explore the unknown. Cameron likens the experience to arriving onto a different planet. Unfortunately for Cameron and scientists, there was not any life that far down. On the other hand, Cameron's sub malfunctioned and he lost sight out of the sub, which forced him to return.
After years of preparation and days of uncooperative weather conditions, James Cameron, at approximately 2 p.m. ET (4 a.m., local time), began descending solo to Earth’s deepest, and perhaps most alien, realm,according to members of the National Geographic expedition. If all goes to plan, the National Geographic explorer and filmmaker should become the first human to reachthe Mariana Trench’s Challenger Deep alone—and the only one to explore it in depth, in person.
